A step back to classic 1955 leaps forward to contemporary chic with the finest collaboration of mid-century charm, modern lifestyle, and family security on the doorstep of Kensington Gardens Reserve…
The mix is immediate, immaculate and on-trend. From a secure, auto-gated keypad arrival, step inside to fresh interiors in cool notes of grey and white, a new Farquhar kitchen, new solid Tasmanian Oak floors and new carpets, keeping every inch of this sandstone-fronted, three-bedroom home’s style high and maintenance low.
A challenge accepted, and won, over 10 years with its current owners.
Custom, seamless and push-close Farquhar joinery adorns the living room for clutter-free family function; the kitchen, complemented by durable Raw Concrete Caesarstone, is complete with a semi-integrated Miele dishwasher, stainless Smeg oven and gas cooktop.
And from yesterday’s small sash window to today’s oversized light-grabbing pane, it grabs an eyeful of garden wall green over the double sink.
Yet every room embraces natural light; lush gardens all round promise privacy and ease with set-and-forget irrigation, where attention can instead turn to entertaining.
With café blinds and capacity for plenty, the all-weather patio is buffered by an established display of lilly pilly and box hedges, ornamentals, roses, citrus, and lawns for play.
Off the laundry, monochrome themes the two-way bathroom, enlisting a 2nd separate WC for family harmony, while all carpeted bedrooms – two doubles and a nursery or study-sized single – have sliding robes and ceiling fans.
The only thing outshining this home is the location; for coffee call on Long Lost Friend, playdates at Kensington Gardens Reserve, a jaunt to The Parade or Magill Road, to school drop-offs at Pembroke, Rostrevor College, St. Joseph’s or St. Peter’s Girls ELC.
There’s something to be said for Sandford’s style, and it’s a yes from us.
